College Governance

The College enjoys a strong tradition of shared governance. In addition to the president and her cabinet, the college’s governance includes the Board of Trustees, the Faculty Senate and Administrative Departments.

The Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is the ultimate governing body of Brampton College. In its fiduciary role, the board holds title to the College’s properties, and manages and allocates funds to fulfill the College’s educational mission and provide for its future. The board is responsible for determining the broad policies under which it operates, approving operating plans proposed by the president, granting degrees and, through delegated authority, for appointing the faculty and appointing tenure.

The Board has an active program of trustee annual giving, with participation by 100 percent of the trustees. In addition to annual giving, the trustees, both individually and as a group, have been generous supporters of recent capital campaigns.

Faculty Governance

An elected Chair of the Faculty sits ex officio on the Reappointment, Promotion and Tenure Committee and on the Board of Trustees Educational Planning Committee. The chair also presides over faculty meetings and meetings of the Faculty Executive Committee. The faculty elects members of the Reappointment, Promotion and Tenure Committee and the Faculty Executive Committee. The Faculty Executive Committee staffs the other faculty standing committees, while the president may create and staff ad hoc committees.
